A new mobile version of under vehicle inspection system (UVIS) to provide safe, rapid method to examine the undercarriage of vehicles for detecting devices or modifications has been introduced.

The new rugged system from Perceptics consists of a high-resolution colour line-scan camera in a folded optical design and LED illumination to provide detailed, seamless colour images.

The system can be used for bi-directional vehicle traffic at borders, prisons, military bases and government facilities.

Perceptics president John Dalton said: “The UVIS mobile unit is ideal for facility access control, secondary, overflow inspection lanes, or where installation of an in-ground UVIS system is not feasible.”

It comes with mobile vehicle ramps and steel frame construction that can accommodate passenger cars with low undercarriage clearance and trucks.
